Yes please, I would certainly like to come, have liked those few I have tried, but currently have none! I see there are a few on sale, so could obtain something or would ask to adopt if possible.

Yes please.

I've got one bottle of 1972.

The last (sob sob) of a full case from a Christie's auction some years ago. All the other bottles were pretty good, so high hopes for this one...

Excellent; this is the only bottle of '72 we have amongst us from replies so far, so if you're happy to save it for this tasting that would be appreciated.[/quote]

Yes - will save the 72.

If for any reason I can't make the tasting then I'll make arrangements to supply the bottle anyway, as suspect finding another might be tricky.

Date now set for the 21st November. I am also pleased to confirm that Sophia Bergqvist of Quinta de la Rosa will be joining us as our industry guest; this is particularly appropriate as for some time in the middle of 20th century, Quinta de la Rosa supplied grapes to Sandeman for production of the Rebello Valente vintage ports.

Please re-confirm your wish/ability to attend now that the date has been set (final costs not confirmed, depends on numbers and hence number of bottles, though expected to be similar to previous vertical tastings).
